Indian Airlines has introduced a raft of services for passengers from Dubai, Sharjah, Ras Al Khaimah and Fujairah.
Passengers on the airline can now avail of advance seat reservation facilities.
Passengers can select the seat of their choice and have it reserved at the time of making their bookings, UAE manager K Shyam Sundar said.
Passengers flying from Dubai can collect the boarding pass for onward journey at the time of check-in at the Dubai airport. Such passengers will have their baggage labelled through to the onward destination, the report added.
Passengers are, however, required to complete customs at the first port of the entry. The baggage is then handed over to the transfer desk, who will arrange for it to be connected to the onward flight, he said.
The onward facility, however, is only for those who have onward Indian Airlines flights scheduled to depart at least three hours after their arrival at the gateway airport. Another condition is that it may be used only for onward flights scheduled to depart within 24 hours from the time of the passenger's check-in at Dubai International Airport.
The report said that a similar facility is under process at Sharjah, Ras Al Khaimah and Fujairah international airports.
Meanwhile, passengers travelling without any registered baggage can avail of the express check-in facility recently introduced by Dnata.
